This guide will teach you how to spoof your location in Mozilla Firefox. Spoofing your location can help you access censored content.

To spoof your location in Firefox, you will need to use a browser add-on:

  • Mac or PC: Use the ExpressVPN browser extension
  • Linux: We recommend Location Guard + VPN

Please note that ExpressVPN is not affiliated with Location Guard.

Note: If your computer is using Wi-Fi, make sure Bluetooth is off. If you’re using LAN, make sure both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are off.
